Do you think its crazy to change a 3 stone setting to another 3 stone setting? My current setting View attachment 757985 20200605_183206.jpg 20200605_183226 (1).jpg View attachment 757985is a 3 stone with pears and I'm thinking of changing to a 3 stone with AVC/AVR sides. I love love love my ring but a 3 stone AVC is just calling my name. Am I nuts?? Should I spent the $$ on something else..AVC earrings or pendant? 20200605_162637.jpg

Your ring is absolutely gorgeous. If you are hoping to be discouraged from changing you are on the wrong forum lol! The new ring will have a different feel to it. The current is very “feminine”, and maybe you want something more “sophisticated” now. I totally get the desire for something new. I’ve changed many times. However, I also have had regret so do think long and hard. Maybe give yourself a time frame and if you are still wanting it after say, 6 mos, then pursue it. The desire may have passed by that point. I just don’t want you to have a regret. How long have you had this setting?

Thank you for bringing up regret.. have been there and do not want to go there again. I've had this setting since 2015 but it held a MRB that I was not in love with and so didn't wear it much. The AVC was just set last year in March. I still enjoy it and love it but browsing photos of AVCs are messing with me . I am in love KristyDarlings ring!! 1591410240143.png

If you love your ring and the next setting is calling your name.....in this situation: use a coin toss to help you decide.

one side of coin=keep
Other side= change.

flip the coin....

when it lands- listen to your inner voice- what does it say? That is your answer....

If no inner voice- whatever it lands on is your answer.
if you didn’t like the answer—- then you have your answer.

Or get another 3 stone made and you can start a collection.

So much fun.

Is it wasting what? I ask because you can keep your pear setting and save it in case you need a new look in the future. Or you can minimize the waste of money by selling it. I don’t think it’s a waste. I love swapping out my settings. Some people spend the same amount on high-end handbags as I do on settings. The handbags sit in the closet and take up space. My settings sit in a tiny little box. So it’s not a waste of space. If you can afford it and really want to do it, it will look gorgeous! And every time you look at your ringer (lol) you will not think it’s a waste! I actually prefer your inspiration pics to your actual setting. I hope you keep us posted.

Thank you for everyone for chiming in. It made me pause and think. I think I am going to wait for a bit since I still enjoy my ring and do not want to regret jumping the gun. But while waiting, I'll keep myself busy looking for a couple cushion/avc sidestones . Thanks again for everyone for your help.

I like the change, it looks like it will have more presence. I would put a colored stone into the pear setting.

Your ring is gorgeous, but only you know what your heart wants.

Have you ever cut out paper *stones* in the desired shape and size and taped them to your existing side stones? It helps to visualize the look and if you’d like the shape on your finger. It’s never a waste (imo) to fulfill your bling dreams.
